An important part of a child’s developing sense of identity is an awareness of their cultural heritage. Our goal with the Joyfully Jewish curriculum is to deepen your child’s appreciation of the Jewish tradition and culture, and to engage the whole family as well! To do so, we will use the most successful tool available: FUN!

Kehilla’s Joyfully Jewish program is for kindergartners and their grown-ups. We meet once a month, on Sundays from 9:30-11:30am at Kehilla Community Synagogue. These classes will focus on Jewish holidays, traditions, and finding joy in Judaism through story-telling, song, art, and cooking projects.

The class is taught by Malka Stover-Kemp, an active member at Kehilla and teacher at Kehilla School. She holds a certificate in early childhood education, is wildly excited by the ideas and curiosities of young people, and is passionate about empowering families to deepen their relationship with Jewish life.


$275 for Kehilla members; $375 for nonmembers
